So for those of you who made an effort to research candidates and ballot measures and got to the polls to participate in this contentious 2010 midterm election, we want to hear from you. We want to know why you voted, how you voted (if you care to share). What was the experience like? How did it made you feel? Did you take your kids? Share what happened on the way to the voting booth -- and what the outcome of important races in your state and in Congress means to you.

Also note: Foursquare is watching voters at Elections.Foursquare.com allowing voters to check in at their polling place and receive an "I Voted" badge. The check-ins will be visualized on at IVotedProject.com. It's a positive way of encouraging voters to say it loud and proud. So for those of you who are on Foursquare, don't forget to check in today.
